The wise in heart

The sun is going down
Light the lamps
For darkness claims the sight

Five were wise and 
Five were foolish 

Trim the lamps came the cry
When darkness comes 
It is too late to look for oil

At midnight
The bridegroom came
He saw five lamps alight
The wise He whisked away

Work while you have the light of day
For the nighttime comes 
When no one can work.
